Since 1959, Eko was for many the FIRST guitar, with millions of people starting to play holding an EKO guitars in their hands. Eko has always been recognized throughout the world for excellent price quality ratio. This first series of acoustic instruments are intended to be not only the first, but also the N(e)XT guitar in the development of a musician ’s path... One step forward, a little more... a little farther. A series of instruments with 100% EKO characteristics. Entry level guitar’s very affordable, made with great care for detail and quality, that make the NXT series an ideal first guitar, but also the &qupt;next" that guitarist wants to have. The rounded/smoothed shapes of the 2014 headstock and bridge are a good match to the "straight cutaway" particular to EKO. The oval shaped hole, although coming from the late 60s, becomes wonderfully modern when applied to the NXT Nylon and Gipsy.
